Approximately one year ago, I wrote a song called "Something's Not The Same", an upbeat, kind of snarky ode to a love affair in the process of going awry. It was, of course, biographical, as are most of my songs, coming at a time when my marriage was just beginning to unravel, but nowhere near the disaster that it's become. If you heard "My Last Love", from a previous post, you know where it is now. In any event, Joe Turano performed his musical magic on the song, transforming my thin gruel into the rich repast you now hear.
But I am dedicating this posting to my two wonderful companions, Leilani Dykas and Terri Steffes, whose provocative undulations and sweet voices transformed my humble effort into something lovely to behold. They have now become my Tonettes, two delightful angels sent to replace the now defunct Tygers and to fill the hole in my soul left by the Tygers's premature demise. Many thanks, my sweethearts!
And, lest I forget, I owe a deep debt of gratitude to Arthur Ircink, of "Wisconsin Foodie" fame, for contributing his valuable time and video production skills to my small project. And to my old friend and Tyger alumnus, Dr. Lanny Hale, for nearly everything!
Stay tuned, lots more to come...
